AMENDATORY SECTION (Amending WSR 09-19-064, filed 9/14/09, effective 10/15/09)
WAC 172-191-100 Directory information.
Directory information is defined to include: Student's name, address, email address((, student net identification number)), telephone number, ((date and place of birth,)) participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight, height and birth dates of athletic team members; dates of attendance at the university, degrees and awards received, and the most recent previous educational agency or institution attended by the student.
The university may release "directory information" unless the student files a written request restricting the disclosure of the information. A student's election to opt out of directory information disclosures does not prevent the university from disclosing or requiring a student to disclose his/her name, identifier, or university email address in a class in which the student is enrolled.
